2021 has started off on a high note. My short story, GIVING UP THE GHOSTS, was published in Constellations and nominated for a Pushcart Prize (an American literary prize that honors the best literary work in small press magazines). And Roaring Epiphany Production Company in NYC will produce "A Night of Steve & Tom" featuring two new one act plays I wrote just for them. Join us via Zoom, January 28th, 7:00pm EST (4:00pm PST). Tickets here! REPC's mission is to give actors with disabilities the opportunity to perform alongside Off-Broadway and Broadway professionals. That and I'll have pieces in two self-produced festivals Zooming out of the NYC area this winter.

At the end of last year, my play, THE REST OF THE STORY, was the first place winner of the Carlow Little Theatre Society's One-Act Playwriting Festival in Ireland. So honored to be a part of this historic Irish theatre's history.

I'd like to thank my friends, family, actors and the folks at First Stage for making the Zoom reading of my new full-length play, LOUIS & LUCIEN: A MODERN RETELLING OF THE CORSICAN BROTHERS a great success! Lots of great feedback. Excited to jump into the next draft. Here's hoping theaters will be up and running again when it's finished!

Like many in the theater community, 2020 has taken us on a major detour. But I’m doing my best to adapt and continuing writing. And it appears to be paying off. I've had virtual and semi-virtual events ALL OVER THE WORLD. Las Vegas, Houston, Chicago, Miami, London, Ireland and Hong Kong. Wow! See all my upcoming productions here!

The Department of Lost Souls

From the deranged minds of Rob Werner and Tom Misuraca comes a novel 20 years in the making: THE DEPARTMENT OF LOST SOULS! A tale so mind-boggling that Tom and Rob had to write alternate chapters of it without knowing what the other would write next, lest they go mad from writing it all down at once! And now you get to read it! If you read one book about hit men, beat poets, gay circus clowns, and a giant cannoli on wheels this year–read this one! WARNING: Contains strong language, adult-ish situations, and characters with unfortunate body odors. Buy the paperback now! Or on Kindle! Listen to a sample here!

If You Read This, You Will Die

After sitting and collecting dust for decades, I've decided to self-publish a collection of my first published short stories. IF YOU READ THIS, YOU WILL DIE rounds up 13 short stories and one poem. Meet animated gelatin molds and inflatable dolls, professional mourners, imaginary friends, cult leaders and the lovely Golden Curls. Fear menacing boxes, the sun, the clock striking, faces and fear itself. Learn how to sell your emotions, live in a graveyard and deal with unruly written words! Be the first on your block to own a piece of my past! Buy it now!
